In life everyone needs strength. No matter what it is? You need some type of push in life to give you the encouragement & strength to make it every day of our life. No matter what your calling is or job you may have we need strength right now we see an uncertain world and this first thing we need to do every morning when we wake up is look to god for strength a lot of sports or athletics out there had to get a boost in order to get strength for them to be the best and that is illegal, but see we get a Boost but are does not come from a pill it comes from Jesus He is the only way to survive.
And he said, ”O man greatly beloved, fear not! Peace is to you; being strong, yes, be strong! So when he speaks to me I was strengthened, and said, ”Let my Lord speak, for you have strengthened me.”
Look at the disciples look at the men in the word of God look at Paul don’t you think when he was in prison he went to Jesus for Strength, Yes Sometimes things stink in this world but we got to keep fighting give it are all seek God for strength.
My soul melts from heaviness strengthen me according to your word.
Let’s talk about the word of God when you Read it what does it do for you? it should left you up it should give you strength, sometimes when I ask someone how many times do you read & I hear the answer, When they say oh I pick it up here & there & I say every day you need to read the word then an answer comes from them & thy say no maybe once a week
(Ok No wonder some are Weak The Bible the Word is what gives us that strength & if you can’t put yourself in the word every day then Yes you will be Weak go to the word again).Read Psalms 119:28
For thus says the Lord God, the Holy One of Israel: ”In returning and rest you shall be saved; in quietness and confidence shall be your strength.”
The one thing when you look at the world you wonder what is going to happen next? How can I make it every day with this battle or that battle & you scream out Give me strength do you know it was never meant to be Easy in this world? No it was not Yes We are human yes we get weak Yes it is sometimes heavy on us But Seek the Lord he will see it through.
Ephesians 3:16, 17
That He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might though His Spirit in the inner man, that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love.
Look this life on earth is short no we were not promised eternal life on earth but in heaven but to deal with thing of the world you need faith you need strength look we all get down & weak we all get disappointed at what we see Going on but Get on your knees Ask God for help look we seen so much hurt in one month &with that being said where do you get the strength to make it the next Month God that is the only way Seek him when you do that you See the Light You know I thought of something we forget that inner man Who is that ?.
That you may walk worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing Him, being fruitful in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God; strengthened with all might, according to His glorious power, for all patience and longsuffering with joy; giving thanks to the Father who has qualified us to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in the light.
I know in my days I had longsuffering with many things from a kid to an adult but the minute I turned all over to God the minute I was willing to partake of what the lord has to offer at that moment the inheritance was & is promised to me. So everything I been through is well worth it.
But those who wait on the Lord Shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.
When you look at this World then remember this verse I mean that with everything going on today we can count on these words.
Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, yes I will help you, and I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
You know I was disappointed in what I seen the last month of July Even Sad of the events that took place in the World but I went to this verse for a reason & so should you.
Counsel is mine, and sound wisdom; I understanding I have strength.
I can’t & will not say why things happen but we need to understand that in time of an uncertain world we need to go to the Lord for Strength now is that time.
The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer; My God, my strength, in whom I will trust; My shield and the horn of my salvation, My stronghold.
Ok with this being said & we see the wrong doings the uncertainty the killings of incent people We need to look back at Jesus who died so we can be free nothing that Satan does can destroy you, if you are with Jesus when I think about faithful servants I think of ones like Marten Luther king who did his best to bring us together not make sides but did his best to unite us His words where we are all created Equal
So last month even I asked god for strength because of all the misleading all the false things being said but I got a word from God & that is you all are my children so stop trying to seek war & find peace
The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
I will say this have you ever noticed Police fire that serve for you & me they never show there Fear thy run in front of the bullet or run into the fire for you Thy Find that strength inside & give it their best & some have died doing that so think about that for a moment !
Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might.
I can’t promise you a better world, I can’t promise you things will be ok, I can’t promise you no Murder, I can’t promise you No Sin, but that Man named Jesus Can. he can give you strength he can change the world, but that’s when we need to stop being Stupid & judgmental & start calling on Him that is the only way we can survive what is going on today in this world
